Apple store employee tries to form a union

If it were China he would have fallen off a building
This year's bravest employee has to be the US bloke who is trying to form a union in the fruity cargo cult Apple.

America does not do unions very well. They are seen as communist agitators and sometimes just gangsters, which they have been. For this reason attempts from workers to form a union have been frowned on by the outfit.

Cory Moll, a part-time employee at an Apple store in San Francisco, is working to form a union to fight for better wages and benefits and to address what he says are unfair practices. Moll’s campaign is also unusual given Apple’s reputation for fierce employee loyalty. People don't join the company because they are making Steve Jobs rich at their expense. They join it because it is part of their religion.

Moll, who has been working at Apple for four years, said he makes $14 an hour at the San Francisco Apple store. The minimum wage for 2011 in San Francisco, one of the most expensive cities in the United States, is $9.92 an hour.

Moll admits that he has received little support from his comrades so far, though he said he has emails expressing support. He just wants to get people talking about it. We wonder how long he will remain working for Jobs' Mob anyway.
